Finding the perfect gift for my dad was always the hardest thing to do, in fact more often than not I considered it a chore rather than something I liked to do. Early on however, I realized there is a trick to most guys and a way to make them completely happy for the gift you gave them. Don't get your dad a tie, or a coffee cup that says "worlds best dad" instead get him something he will use and won't keep hidden away! These gifts, of course, can be for any guy in your life, not just your dad. Thankfully there is one thing that most men have in common that they like; tools or anything that looks like a tool. It doesn't matter if it's a wrench, a flashlight or a watch that looks like some super James Bond gadget, he will most likely love it. Check out the following tools and gadgets listed below!
FenixLight Flashlights - These are one of the most high quality flashlights you can available to consumers right now. Not only are they made from high quality materials but the pure raw unadulterated power that runs through these flashlights is amazing. I was checking some out this week because my dads birthday is coming up and I wanted to get him something nice that he doesn't already have. I found one flashlight called the "Fenix PD30 Cree Premium (Q5) 220 Lumens" flashlight and this guy actually has a life of 50,000 hours. And I know my dad could use something like this, he's always going to work in his garage or working on his car. Most of the flashlights from Fenix come in either silver or black T6 aircraft grade aluminum so you know they really will stand the test of time; unlike that of a tie!
Leatherman Charge TTi - The Charge TTi boasts a cutting hook, scissors, outside-accessible blades, bit drivers, crimpers and more. There are two other types for this tool but this is the BEST one I could find! This one also includes a comfort-sculpted titanium handle and an S30V stainless steel clip-point knife come in. Grab a hold of one today and you will quickly see why the Charge models are the pinnacle of the multi-tool collection. Once you see a photo of one of these things you will be in complete awe, imagine how the guy in your life would feel as well! This really is a terrific gift for anyone.
Orion Three Mantel Lantern - This propane lantern's fabrication and performance are incredibly simple: There is a base, a valve, an auto light switch, and a diffusion design on the globe. You can get up and burning in less than a minute, and its three mantelpieces throw off a lot of light. The Orion is compact, has a smart case, can be set up and lit quickly, and is bright. This isn't really a tool per se but it's a really great gift for the camper or hunter that wants the best technologically available to him (or her). This lantern in particular can burn for up to 3.5 hours on high output!
Fenix TK20 LED Flashlight w/Cree Q2 LED 150 Lumens - Another awesome flashlight by the makers of FenixFlash Limited! The Fenix TK (Tank) series features a powerful, solid, durable, and waterproof design intended for rugged outdoor and military use. The new TK20 is specially designed for outdoor activities. Featuring a Neutral white LED of about 4000K colour temperature, it has achieved improved penetrating power and colour rendition. High output and careful design of the long-distance reflector, combined with a fresh body design, enable the TK20 to deliver outstanding beam throw, anti-roll features, resistance to freezing temperatures, and more. I mean come on its called the TK Tank! This flashlight will go through all the wear and tear you put it through and then some!
Any guy in any world would be absolutely excited to get any of the tools listed above. And if your guy is anything like my dad, he will seriously put these tools to good use. So, the next time the man in your life has a birthday or it's around Christmas time or any other holiday for that matter, don't think ties, think tools! I think your guy will definitely thank you for something he can actually use this time around! Good luck!
